Karen Kukish, Principal

Thanks for visiting my teacher page! As you know I am Mrs. Pierce. I am very happy to be back in grade one because, FIRST GRADE ROCKS! Every year I get so excited to see my students become readers, writers and mathematicians. Last year I moved up and taught Second Grade.   In the past I have taught first grade and special education at the middle school level and then right here at Whiting Lane. After going to high school in Windsor I graduated from Southern Connecticut University and then went back to college for my Masters Degree at Saint Joseph College.


I have a 7 1/2 year old son named Tanner who will be in second grade this year. My husband and I LOVE to mountain bike. When we have any free time you can probably find us out riding the trails. Tanner is also becoming quite the mountain biker.  We also like to cross country ski, downhill ski and hike. A few of my favorite places to visit are Martha's Vineyard, Crested Butte, Colorado and Moab, Utah.


It has been fun sharing a little bit about me. Keep checking back to the first grade website to see if I have added anything new.


Mrs. Pierce
